Charisma Cardz DT - Christmas Crafting and Sheena Douglass sneak peek day 2

Morning all my lovely followers!! Hope you've all been having a good week so far! Well today sees a brand new challenge over at Charisma Cardz and boy oh boy did we have a record of a week last week with over six hundred entries, you guys really made it very difficult for me to choose the top 3! This week we would luv to see your Christmas Crafting and I have taken the liberty of incorporating my challenge card with a sneek peak of Sheena Douglass' new release stamps, naughty I know but it is still Christmas Crafting lol!! I used papers from last year's xmas stash so sadly can't remember where they come from.
I've coloured the image in with Copics which I'm now in luurrvvee with hehe! On the mirror and clock behind Santa I have used glossy accents to make them look more real. I followed the fabby sketch over at Sketch Saturday so I'll be entering this card into their challenge. The ribbon is from my stash and the poinsettia's are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The three smaller ones in the bottom left hand corner I have sprinkled full of Diamond Dust which I learnt from Bev Rochester, thanks Sweetie!
Hope my card has inspired you to want to nip over to the challenge blog to see what my fab teamies have created and enter your own. I'll be back tomorrow with another sneak peek for Sheena as well as my dt card for Totally Papercrafts. Lotsa luv xxxx

  6. Love this scene Carol, I so need to get more Christmas cards done.

    Thanks for your comments, I did see I had made the top 3, thank you hun and thanks for telling me as I do sometimes miss them. I did have the blinkie but as I have won before I just add the dates to it. My blog is becoming a Top 3 blinkie zone, lol, I received 14 awards in September so if I have won before or been in the top 3 before I just add the date to it. I hope that doesn't sound like I'm boasting. I tried to change my blog into a 3 column but it didn't look right, will have to have another look into it. I've moved the Charisma one further up the page now so you can see it when you visit, lol.

    Thanks again hun, Tracy x
